TO HER 

"Hand in hand we come 

Christopher Robin and I 
To lay this book in your lap. 
Say you're surprised? 
Say you like it? 
Say it's just what you wanted? 
Because it's yours — 
Because we love you."

One fine day we stumped down to the

North Pole. When we finally got there, it was 
raining, but when we woke up the next morning, 
there it was — snowing! "The more it SNOWS — 
tiddely-pom." Pooh watched us as we walked and 
skiied and bowled and shopped, and he listened 
eagerly when Miss Hearsey told us all about the 
Expotitions of Piglet, Chistopher Robin, Eeyore, 
Kanga, Roo, and Rabbit and his relations.

PREPS 



Although the Prep class is the first in the 
series of four, the class of '57 has already caught 
on to the tricks and tactics of boarding school life 
such as: careful dust, apple core, and powder piles 
in some invisible corner; bed dummies; pie beds; 
knotted pajamas; and closet study halls. 




"57" now has its own characteristic phrases 
and antics. "Idgeeboo," "gooder," "bless yooo," 
"love you always in the morning," "beeseguys," and 
other quips which appear undecipherable to upper 
classmen are frequently heard in our conversations. 

Our favorites are homemade "cookers," "I 
Want to Be Evil," those cherished hours from nine' 
thirty to seven, hair-cutting sessions, fast caps, "Love 
That Red" toenail polish, and "Jen doute." These 
are just a few pieces of the puzzle which when 
fitted together form '57's Prep year which will be 
unforgettable to us all.

STUDENT 
GOVERNMENT 



With the standards of last year's Student 
Government as a guide, we of the Council have 
tried to do our work, reg.irding the interests of both 
faculty and the students. As any Student Govern- 
ment should, we have added several innovations to 
our organization, among them the Blue Key, the 
Library' Committee, and. at the suggestion of the 
faculty, an advisor system. We have endeavored, 
under the generous guidance of Miss Hearsey and 
the fine leadership of Joanie, to continue the 
emphasis on the individuals becoming a respon- 
sible, mature member of the student bodv.

As members of the Abbot Christian Associa' 
tion, we are given opportunities to be of help to 
many people and organizations. However, the in- 
trinsic value of our association is that it embraces all 
the school in a common bond of Christian love. The 
personal spiritual goals realized and developed at 
Abbot will prepare and sustain us for the experiences 
of our future lives.

ABBOT DRAMATIC SOCIETY 



The Abbot Draniiitic Society is one ot the 
best extni'curricuhir groups in our hte. It consists 
of wirls in the upper twt) classes, who do not neces- 
sarily have outst.mdinij actinij ability, but who show 
an interest in dramatics and have po:entialities. 
Membership is limited to fifteen, but a balance be- 
tween the two classes and the merits of .i small 
group are factors. Without a discourse on the value 
cf a dramatic society, let it suffice to say th.it this 
has been a m.ost successful year under the patient, 
professional guidance of Miss Hale.

LIBRARY COMMITTEE 



The Library Committee is ano:her new 
crganization this year. The members of the group 
assist the librarian in many of the details of library 
keeping. The successful efforts of the committee 
contribute much to the smooth running of the 
library. 



A new organization this year is the Blue 
Key Society. It aids Miss Hearsey in welcoming 
parents and their daughters to Abbot. This gives 
them an idea of school life through the girls' point 
of view. We hope to have set a precedent thac will 
remain successful.

Mrs. Reeves, 
our adviser and friend. 



Once , upon a time there lived at Abbot a 
group of girls under the name of The Circle Staff. 
In the particular year of 1954. the st.iff was larger 
than usual, having as its distinguished honorary 
members, Winnie-thcPooh, Christopher Robin, Pig- 
let, Kanga (and Roo) and Rabbit with ALL of his 
friends and relations. Without fail each Wednesday 
afternoon, this merry group gathered in its Draper 
Den. "Thump, thump, thump" went their brains 
thinking, and their heads nodded to and fro at the 
wise suggestions of their helpful advisor, Mrs. 
Reeves. Busy as bees and humming a hum as they 
worked, they planned, photographed, sketched and 
wrote, always eyeing the oncoming deadline. Pooling 
their "Very Little Brains," they had fun working 
together. And now their book is finished. Here it is. 
THEY MADE IT!

CDURANT 



Twice a year, hy dint of frantic searching for 
material, last-minute proof reading, and wild racking of the 
brain, we of the Courant Board turn out another sHm 
masterpiece of literary genius. The product of much hard 
work en the part of its members or any other kind soul 
who has contributed, it owes much of its success to the able 
sponsorship of Miss Sweeney. In spite of a rather unliterary 
atmosphere in our garret nx)m, i.e., pipes, radiators, suf- 
focating heat, we have managed, like other struggling artists 
before us, to meet c-ur dc.idlines. We hope that future 
boards will survive the hectic weeks before publication and 
will find, as we have, a deep reward in the fruits of 
their labor.

ABBOT ATHLETICS 




The sports calendar was full of shining high- 
liijhts this year. The hockey and lacrosse playdays 
found the Ahhot team on nearly every winning 
side, and as for Field Days, they were the hardest 
ever fought. The Griffin and Gargoyle teams, under 
the impartial and conscientious direction of our 



three favorite gym teachers. Miss Judd, Miss Ritchie, 
and Miss Peddle, were decked out for battle as 
never before, and as Winnie "Griffin" Johnson and 
Margie "Gargoyle" Johnson fought it out, they 
never strayed from friendly competition.

The legend of the Gargoyle Team 
goes back to the days of bows and arrows, 
knights and fair ladies, when Robin Hood 
and his "merry green band" opposed the 
men of the great Lion-Hearted King in 
Sherwood Forest. Although all of us know 
that the "'merry green band"" was always 
victorious and outwitted the enemy, few 
of us have ever heard ot the secret behind 
these successes. There was a comrade who 
served with Robin Hood and, although he 
only slightl)' resembled his fellows, he was 
their spy, their inspiring force, and their 
tavonte. This w.is Lister! He has remained 
immortal with his "'merry green band" 
through the vears down to 19.^4.

With walks and with stamps 
Each "Ciritf" did her part. 

With Winnie and Gus 
The shield we had sought, 
And behind those brave two 
We valiantly fought.

The first ot the year; 
Then Caesar came forth 
With a. loud, roaring cheer.

To the team that's a winner

From initiation day until "Field Fall Day." we all 
played hard on the basketball and tennis courts and the 
hockey field. The game? were all exciting and the awards 
were the grand climax. 

Soon the cold weather drove us inside to the gym 
and dance classes. With the coming of colder weather, we 
took to the ice and ski slopes. The thnlling gym demonstra- 
tion ended the winter term. 

The warm weather set in and we rushed out to 
baseball, tennis, and lacrosse, supplemented by archer>', track, 
and riding. The tops in competition was Spring Field Day. 

At last chapel, after much anticipation, the Shield 
was awarded, thus closing sports for another year.
